    It makes it a lot easier to tell if it is fake, if you post some good pictures.

    Pics. Unless it looks ridiculously unlike other 860's I think your fine. The fake/clones I've seen of Benchmades look nothing like the original ones.

    Going by the pictures I'd say it's fake.

    Oh man. That's totally fake. I will email you my address so you can ship it to me and I will hand it over to the proper authorites so they can send it to Benchmade and start the investagation.:eek:

    Na. It's real and if it's not it's copied to perfection.

    Their CS is awesome. Called them myself about a possible fake. I bought a 810 on an online store and when it arrived it was a 810 grey blade with the liners,pivot,screws of an 810sbk. I said to myself, WTF? That ain't right. so called Benchmade and I told them where I got it from and asked why it would come this way and they told me they had made them that way in early production. Sooo all was good. If you need some info about a BM knife best just to call them cause THEY WILL HAVE ANWSERS TO ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. Fast. I actually wish I wouldn't have sold that 810 with the grey blade and SBK hardware. Looked better that way IMO.

    Umm, maybe it's just me. But did they change the grind of the Bedlam from a flat grind to a hollow grind? The knife in the pics OP posted looks to have a hollow grind, yet when I search pics of the Bedlam it appears to have a flat grind. Also, OP the reason for you thinking it was a fake was because of the 154CM and patent markings, yet neither of those are visible in your pictures.

    Going purely off the two pictures OP posted, I'm going to say it's fake. Though a very convincing one at that. Regardless of what Benchmade CS says.

    I took it to a dealer and compared it to another one today its identical its the real deal my cell cam sucks but it is the current run of the bedlam

    And if its fake they used a real box it even scans and comes up or qr reader as benchmade knife. I tried to take better pics but my phone just stinks.

    New pics make the grind more clear. Looks real to me.

    Sorry, it's just that the previous pics made the knife appear to have a hollow grind.
